Time Warner Approves AOL Spin Off

Not so much a revelation, but more of tying-up a loose end. As expected, Time Warner’s board of directors have approved the spin-off of AOL–sans the dial-up division.

Time Warner hopes to conclude the spinoff, which requires an SEC review, by the end of the year. The company also expects to buy back Google’s 5 percent stake as part of completing this transaction but there is no confirmation that Google has agree to the terms or whether a agreed-upon valuation has taken place.

I’m sure AOL CEO Tim Armstrong is licking his chops at the news. Now we’ll get to see what he’s made of.

    I think Tim will be able to do some good with AOL. This should have happens 3-5 years ago and not now. My worry is that it might be too late for them to make a strong run and they really need to do some re-branding with AOL because more people remember them for their 5000 free hours spam CD”s than they do for anything good.

  • Master Craig

    I think Time Warner is just looking at the bottom line, and that 5% back from Google won't hurt either. I am sure they can't wait for the SEC to finish their review.
